New in AutoCAD 2017: Hatch Layer

Product News


Heidi Hewett

No. 10 in the list of top new AutoCAD 2017 features. AutoCAD 2017 enhancements to the HPLAYER system variable enable you to create a new drawing layer and set it as the AutoCAD hatch layer, all in a single operation. The HPLAYER system variable was introduced, in AutoCAD 2011, so you could specify an existing layer on which you could create new hatches and fills, regardless of the current layer.

See the HPLAYER enhancement in action: AutoCAD 2017 User Interface enhancements video.
